All of Tokyo Game Show's Crazy Cosplay

Held over several days each year in the massive Makuhari Messe convention center on the outskirts of Tokyo, the Tokyo Game Show is one of Japan largest gatherings of game develoeprs, publishers, and press in the region.

It may not be anywhere near the scale of Western conventions such as E3 or Comic-con but the show has been gradually improving each year to provide both public and press attendees with more substance and entertainment beyond the usual display booths and formal presentations. One way in which companies are attempting to attract more attention for their games and products is through more creative booth designs and the integration of promotional cosplay models who wear anything from basic promotional T-shirts to wild and impressively details costumes based on characters from within the game they're promoting.

Here's a collection of some of the more memorable professional cosplayers seen at the 2015 Tokyo Game Show. See some cosplayers that you really like? Why not pin them to your Japanese culture, anime, or cosplay Pinterest boards? Want to see more photos from Japan as soon as they're taken?
